One interesting feature in SW:Battlefront that might be good for BF2 is the
ability to turn team switching off.

SW:BF has the option of auto side assign and eliminating the choice of the
client choosing which side they play on.

One thing I've noticed this does to a public game is it dramatically
increases the balance of not only persons but skill in a public match.

Might be a feature worth looking at for BF2, helps keep the teams even and
helps keeping people from team stacking..

I'd suggest lowest score that dies first (newest players should be
switched, not those who have been playing on a particular side for a good
while).  Or recent switchers to the unbalanecd side (prevents those wanks
who switch to the 'winning' side).
